    I had an item in the 4th generation Jazz section regarding the boot floor being very flimsy - revealed when a full size spare carried.

    My wife has just bought a very good second hand 3rdgeneration Si (see garage) and lo and behold it has the possible origins of the extremely flimsy boot floor when a full size spare is carried!!

    Horrible horrible shameful Honda. Soichiro must be birlin in his grave!!

    But at least in this Jazz I can buy a better floor - cost only around £700 from Honda or £50 - £60 on ebay, what do you think I should do?

    For someone buying a £12,000 car £115 is small change but on a used car it doesn't make sense. Jack is a jack, as long it's not £5 and not made out of wood it should do its job. I have previously bought jack from different manufacturers that suited the weight of the car.
